The tailcoat was the de must have article of clothing for any man of at least middle class standards since the Regency era. It was high in the back of the neck, fitted in the back, chest and abdomen, had long tails and the wide lapels so distinctive of the period. It could be either single or double breasted and could be worn open or closed. It was cut high in front so that even when closed a strip of the waistcoat ( or modern vest) could be seen beneath. The modern tailcoat is very similar with the original ones except the collar shape which is a more relaxed style.
